Atripla and Hives
Dec 19, 2008

Hello Dr.

I started taking Atripla in October of 2007 and had no ill side effects, until recently in Nov 08 I've been having an outbreak of hives. I'm trying to pin point the cause of it (clothing, detergent, or medication). My question is: can a person develop a reaction one year later after initiating atripla? will it go away? thanks

Response from Dr. Henry

It would be very unusual to develop a rash due to one of the components of Atripla 14 months after starting it-most likely some other cause. KH
